More than an Environmentalist Manifesto

By pedsarq
It's about a small town that becomes the target of a natural gas company and is on the brink of selling itself for millions. The problem is, the small town is beautiful and it's home. Will all that...

Promised Landing To DVD

By Darkola
Matt Damon, as always, did a great job in this movie, he never seems to disappoint with his acting, no matter what role is thrown at him, and the story itself is a good story about a company coming...

Promised Land

By cathysoza
Once again, Damon gives his all, well-paced, full speed ahead performance. The film's theme is near and dear to my heart, since I was born and raised in small San Joaquin Valley cow and crop farm...

Terrible

This movie is soooo boring and preachy - obviously the movie makers had an agenda and didn't really care about much else - Damon is so BAD and the rest of the cast is sleep walking- probably Damon's...

Promised Land - a Flop

By JUNIEBME
Very boring, can't find anything really good to say about the movie and to me it is quite misleading as to what the plot is suppose to represent... save you're money.....

Clever but moralizing

By Scots_Rancher
Big business seals deals regardless of who gets hurt, who gets trampled, and what the outcome is for years ... I did feel like it was written by a smug, tree hugging Hollywood executive as an...
